Ancient Egypt is a fascinating subject for children. We bring to life the celebratory aspect of Ancient and modern Egyptian culture with our Presentation, Dance / Drumming Workshops and Show.
2/4 or 5 hour workshops available with drumming and dance or perhaps just one activity.
Competitive prices working from London and the surrounding counties and beyond.
Please visit our website for further details.

With our tried and tested format we offer an amazing experience for the children and a worry free day for the teachers. Our team are all experienced and skilled performers who inspire and bring out the best in pupils.
We are fully insured and each carry an up to date full DBS.

A typical day (4 hours two performers) could be:

All three classes together for introduction with slides and demonstration of instruments, then working with one class at a time, we split the class half drum half dance for 30 mins workshop then swap groups for another 30 mins before moving on to the next class for an hour then the remaining class for another hour we then perform a show with the three classes for the last half hour.
we are also able to accommodate two classes or even four in a day.
We also supply all the drums.
